    I have been working at Education Management Corporation

    Pros

    EDMC has turned the ship around and started aligning business practices with mission, values and beliefs. The future for the company should be more stably after recent layoffs and restructuring.

    Cons

    Formal organization that uses formal processes to create change and innovation. For profit education is under scrutiny thus creating a difficult climate and unpredictable environment to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership must display emotional intelligence and focus on behavior and professional development for a productive and committed workforce regardless of the challenges in the industry.
